3rd April

Most of the interest was offshore again where eight hours of watching produced 737 Brent Geese, nine Pintails, 14 Shovelers, three Eiders, 484 Common Scoters and 20 Red-breasted Mergansers, 62 Red-throated and seven Black-throated Divers, seven Arctic and three Great Skuas, 90 Little Gulls, eight Mediterranean Gulls, 490 Sandwich Terns and 23 Common Terns of note.

The bushes were fairly quiet with just four Firecrests, 13 Goldcrests, nine Chiffchaffs and a Willow Warbler whilst a Buzzard was the best of the few birds flying overhead.

Continuing the recent theme of birds of dubious origin, a Ring-necked Parakeet was also seen.

At least four Porpoises were feeding offshore.
